Thinking Of You Card ~ Pumpkin Patch (post #2)

I've been collecting clear acetate materials for years now.  You know the stuff that our Cricut cartridges, embossing folders and other assorted crafting goodies come in.  A while back I ran some of it through an embossing folder to see what would happen.  I loved how it turned out but never made anything with it.  It is still waiting. lol.
I wanted to see how it would look using this folder with pumpkins and vines.
Next I wondered if it would work to color on it with copics and it did.
I punched corner notches to hold the acetate in place on the frame.
Then I added the 'friend' sentiment to a tag and the 'another name for love' sentiment to a small frame.
To finish off the card I gave the tag a little black brad and adhered it in place with foam tape for dimension.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment stamps from the World's Best stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Pumpkin and vine folder from Cuttlebug (sorry can't find its name).
*Corner notch punch from Family treasures.
*Multi Tags Scallop punch from McGill creativity.
*Copic pens YR04 & G07.
*Brad from Recollections.
*Memento tuxedo Black stamps pad.
May your day always be filled with love.
